Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 18, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta EIGHT THIS LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, MARCH IS, 1920 Rose of Board of Trade Not Very Optimistic About It Can rain be produced by artificial means? That Is a question that J. S. Rose. secretary 0! the board of trade in tend a to thoroughly Investigate. His first step is to get Jn touch with Dominion Government officials and oflleials of the United States government at Washing ton, so he can get all the ex- pert advice obtainable on tbo contin- ent. This action has been promoted by Ih6 publication In Calgary of an fntor- vlew telliug how CaptAln McCall, of the McCall Aeroplane Co. Is going to produce rain this summer :n the Cal- gary district. According to the Inter- view two ways are open to-produce too desired'results. One Is to string a vlrc, charged with electricity a cou- ple of thousand feet, into tlie the other is to cart a hunch -M sand up ibove tho clouds and then drop It, the Band collecting rS.a around it and its For CougKg, Colds, the ic'.fef of fc- conditions of the ihroal aHj'ir.g from nutic affections anj of iJic Respiratory Orgins.

Mr. Hose previously conducted an investigation into this question and was told by bcth Canadian and United States authorities. I bit much of this rain-making talk is buukum. lu regard to this the following slate- meut from Mr. lioso appeared in The Herald oa February 27: "The claims of 'Rainmaker' Hatdeld are disputed by Meteorological offices, such as, the Meteorological office, Toronto, and the weather bureau of the United States Agricultural Department. Washington, lu reply to a communication from Sec- retary Rosa of the board of trade, en- j closing press clippings In regard to the powers of letters were received from the Institutions disputing the powers claimed by Mr. Hatfield. "The contents of these we-ra com- municated to tho members of tho board of trade, present at thc'Thurs- j das- luncheon. The pronto Meteoro- logical office, in a letter from the ccior, Mr. K. P. Stupart, stated that j in his opinion 'tho thing is ab- surd.' He pointed oat that 'we are not ignorant us to causes which lead to rain and fully recognize the forces of nature Involved in the pro- duction of a simple summer shower are gigantic, fa gigantic Indeed that IB hard to conceive that any forces, chemical or otherwise, that maii.can bring to. bear are otherwise but absol- utcly picayune. i "Tho explosion which wrorkao" Hall- fai did not lead eveiTid the formation j of a cloud. Further the letter wont on to say, '11 ls..alisolutely inconceiv- able that the claim made by Mr. Hat- field can have'any' foundation wbat- ever.' "The Washington letter from the chief of the weather bureau, Mr. C. Marvin, said: 'A considerable number of claims of the artificial production of rain hsve been exploited in the news- j papers, and many of them Have been brought to tlie attcnjjon of tho wcath- cr bureau, ell are either unsound In principle or utterly Impractica'bla or of no valuo. This statement has been made by hijjh authorities in meteoro- logy aijd others time and time.again, to ntnlncnt newspapers and highly re- Iiutcrt magazines; repeatedly publish- ing wonderful accounts like the one- in the clipping you enclosed of the al- leged success and accomplishments of these so-called rainmakers."
